Bailey Creek women

Bailey Creek’s Women’s Golf Club hosted its 2nd Annual Women’s Open Golf Tournament on June 19th. Flower Power was again the theme of the event, with 59 golfers from Northern California and Washington attending.

We had 2 flights with 30 teams per flight! Our winner for Flight 1, Net Scores was Team 29, Mary Trafton and Margie Joseph, 1st place; 2nd place went to Team 1, Tammy Brooks and Charlene Brown; and 3rd-place Team 26, Giovanna Zinn and Sophia Wages.

The winners for Flight #2 were asfollows: 1st place, Team 27 Lovey Gower and Lou Johnson; 2nd place, Team 28 Heather Lunsford and Melissa Lunsford; with 3rd place going to Team 7 Judy Rossi and Karen Scurlock.

Winners for Flight 1, Gross Scores were as follows: 1st place, Team 11 Teresa Pustejovsky and Karen Treanor; 2nd place, Team 23 Karla Dreiss and Kelly MacKinnon. Winners for Flight 2, Gross scores were 1st place, Team 30 Donna Peragallo and Blind Draw; and 2nd place, Team 9, Patty Cleland and Kathy Benner.

Awards followed a fabulous lunch of varied salads, rolls, melons and Snickerdoodle cookies! Tables were decorated with live plants, which were given away as table prizes; a fun day was had by all.

Right on the back of our “Flower Power” tournament came our 1st game day of July. This time Monday was our day of play as July 4th was also during this week.

We held our monthly meeting, reviewing the tournament and suggestions for next year. Our game this day was “low net” and for any players wanting to join in, we had “low putts.” Birdies, chip-ins and low scores made for many winners and awards.

Flight 1 winners were: 1st place, with a Birdie on #5 and 16 and she broke 100, went to Lovey Gower; 2nd place went to Kym Coco, who had a chip-in, Birdie on hole #3; and 3rd place went to Debbie Sayre who broke 90 and had low putts of 29.

Flight 2 winners were 1st place, Mo Clark, “so good you could join us, from Redding, we miss you!” said Pallari. Second place went to Pat Drake and 3rd place went to Wynnetta Regli with a chip-in on hole 10. Other winners were Terri Chuchel with a chip-in on hole 9, Karen Treanor with a Birdie on hole 4 and Ginger with a Birdie on hole 8.

Thanks to all those players who have had 3 putts this season, our pig has gained so much weight that we had to “slaughter” her this game day and ordered appetizers for all. Due to reincarnation, she has already started gaining weight once again, (for each 3 putt each golfer feeds her 25 cents to a maximum of $1 per game day). Sad to say, she gains weight rapidly!!

We look forward to next week and welcome any new players, guests and members. Regular play days are Wednesdays, arrival time 10:30 a.m. with tee off at 11 a.m.

Please call the pro shop 259-4653 or Jenni Cesarin (Captain) 284-7469 if interested.

Graeagle Meadows men

“There were 19 players signed up for golf on July 3. It was game on with teams of four competing under the rule of 1-2-3,” said Graeagle Meadows Men’s Golf Association Communications Director Chuck Franck. “In other words, best score on hole 1, two best scores on 2 and three best scores on hole 3.” The process then repeated.  Taking first place with a low score of 120 was the team of Grant Mayfield, John Scott, Dave Dierking and Chuck Franck.

In a close second, with a score of 124, was the team of Don Barnes, Darrel Woods, Dan Anderson, and Dennis Flynn.  “The winning team’s Grant Mayfield led his group with three birdies, one of them coming 100 yards from the hole, jarred!” said Franck.

Six skins were noted in the competition. With all his birdies, it was expected Grant Mayfield won two skins while the other four, with one each, went to Jim Oster, Dan Anderson, Jim Reynolds and Don Barnes.

The club’s annual match play competition wraps up soon. Final elimination results have Dave MacDonald and Jim Oster competing for Match Play Champion, while Gene Carr and John Sciborski will play for the consolation spot. They will be playing their matches soon.

“Inquires about membership in the Graeagle Men’s Golf Association can be submitted to gmga.golf@gmail.com, or by visiting our website at gmeadowsclubs.com/MenHomeDir/index.html,” said Franck.

Graeagle Meadows women

On July 4th the Graeagle Meadows Women’s Golf Club sponsored a family fun day called Stars and Stripes, in which Women’s and Men’s Club members were invited to bring visiting kids and grandkids (no handicaps needed). “The game was a just for fun nine hole, four-person scramble played variously from the red, white and blue tees,” reported Carol Miller. “Each foursome received an American flag, and each player received their choice of a tee prize from a funky assortment of Independence Day motif items.”

The day started with afoot-long hot dog lunchon the clubhouse deck, and a contest for best patriotic ensemble (Larry Pinson), and best decorated golf cart (Norm and Carol Miller).

“Special thanks go to Women’s Club President Sharla Scott, who chaired event, with the able assistance of her husband,Dr. John Scott, who is the Men’s Club President,” said Miller.

Mount Huff

“It’s been a lively couple of weeks at Mt. Huff!” said Jocelyn Cote for Mt. Huff.

Beginning on June 12th, the winning team of Ron Christensen, Leo Sorosinski and Margie Joseph came in at eight-under- par. The second place showing at five-under-par was credited to Ron Williams, Joe Hagwood, and Dick Grace.

Bill McRoberts hit it closest to the pin, and Dick Grace, Ron Christensen and Mike Ingles aced a three-way chip-in.

“Another beautiful summer day dawned on June 19th and brought out the best golfers Mt. Huff has!” said Cote.

In first place at a whopping twelve-under-par sure made Don Hubbell, Ted Trafton, and Leo Sorosinski pretty proud.

The second place team, not far behind, at eight-under-par was won by Ron Williams, Don McConnell, and Dick Gtace.

“Darel Joseph nailed it closest to the pin,” said Cote. The chip-in was carried over to next week.

“Good times! Come join us, sign-ups begin at 8:30 a.m. and play commences at 9 a.m — we beat the heat!” said Cote.
